The specialisation in Transnational Ecosystem-based Water Management is an international programme for future water managers, combining ecology, hydrology, and socio-economics. We focus on ecological solutions, often more effective than technical adjustments. Think of estuaries with sea grass fields breaking the waves instead of reinforcing dikes, or self-purification of drainage-basins, making dredging unnecessary.
In this programme, you will learn to tackle problems in international water management on the basis of ecological, hydrological, and social-economic aspects. During your internships, you will be responsible for your own analysis, under the supervision of one of our top researchers.
This Master’s specialisation is partly taught at Radboud University and partly at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany. This means that you’ll profit from the expertise at two universities and become familiar with different cultures and research approaches.
